Description

The AFE2256 is a 256-channel, analog front-end (AFE) designed to suit the requirements of flat-panel detector (FPD)-based digital x-ray systems. The device includes 256 integrators , a programmable gain amplifier (PGA) for full-scale charge level selection, a correlated double sampler (CDS) with dual banking, and 256:4 analog multiplexers.

The device also features four 16-bit successive-approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). Serial data from the ADCs are available in low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) format.

The Nap and power-down modes enable substantial power saving that is especially useful in battery-powered systems.
